CIMB Political News - 13 July 2013

Women's groups and lawmakers are seeing red over the remarks by Pas' Rantau Panjang MP Siti Zailah Mohd Yusoff that women could prevent sexual crimes by not wearing shorts and skimpy dresses. Siti Zailah also earned nationwide ire when she asked the government to consider enacting laws to prevent women from wearing "indecent" clothing. Women's groups and lawmakers said such remarks were insulting, distasteful and seemingly gave excuses for people to commit sexual crimes against women. (NST)
